Our strange legal system

I keep reading news about men who got arrested and convicted cause they slept with a girl promising marriage and then did not which tantamount to rape.
Now according to dictionary and in the broader sense soliciting anything in lieu of sex is prostitution. So isn’t asking for marriage in lieu of sex, also prostitution? Is the court of law then today legalising it?
And on a different thought if we legalising prostitution using marriage as a barter why not legalise it when money, is the point of barter?

Are we saying prostitution is ok as long as we solicit marriage and not money? Point to ponder…

    The crucial operative angle you’re completely missing here is that the men are being convicted of rape. You’re also misrepresenting the dictionary meaning of prostitution which is specifically about soliciting economic favours in lieu of sex…not anything…definitely not marriage.

    This is definitely not the argument you claimed it to be on twitter.
